- The Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies (HNC) is the only graduate program of its kind – a collaborative effort where degrees are jointly awarded by The Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. The HNC offers both a one-year Graduate Certificate in Chinese and American Studies and a two-year Master of Arts in International Studies with a choice of focus in one of four concentrations: International Politics, International Economics, International and Comparative Law, and Chinese Studies. Students participating in the MA program will receive a degree conferred by both The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and Nanjing University. The Center is a fully bi-cultural and bi-lingual institution located in Nanjing, China, on the campus of Nanjing University. Non-Chinese students take their classes in Mandarin Chinese while Chinese students take their classes in English, and MA students will write and defend a thesis in their target language at the end of the two-year program. Hopkins-Nanjing Center alumni join a growing global network of over 2,000.
